Just playing with the new Lensbaby Velvet 85 lens that Kirk picked up for me on a recent trip to Portland. The lenses are manufactured in Portland, there is no sales tax in Oregon, and Kirk was going to be there for a few days and could bring it back duty free. The savings added up to about $200 buying it there and bringing it back, vs buying it here or online.
I love a good deal 😀
It’s extremely well built, and completely manual, making it a challenging learning curve.
But I think we’ll be good friends eventually.
